  1. Penguinet isn't working with Dropbear (on OpenWRT routers)

    Even version 2.70 of Penguinet won't connect properly to Dropbear as built for OpenWRT routers. No errors, says 'Connected', but no text output, typing does nothing.

    That accounts for about half my usage, and using alternative SSH clients gets old really quickly...

    • search for connection profile

      I lterally have hundreds of servers and virtual servers to monitor and maintain. I need the ability to search the connection profiles for a conection profile name and have the connection profile tree expand or open up to a specific connection profile.

        • Ability to specify custom directory where settings and profiles are kept

          Would it be possible to do this? VanDyke's SecureCRT does this which I find very helpful as my company requires that I store the settings and profiles on an encrypted disk if I want to be able to work from home. By using a custom folder and setting it to the encrypted disk I'm able to make a change to the settings or profiles at home and have it picked up automatically at work and vice-versa.

          I really like PenguiNet and would like o switch to it from SecureCRT but this is a deal-breaker for me at the moment.

          Thanks…

            Hi,
            How many of the settings do you need to be stored on the encrypted disk? Absolutely everything, or just the details for connecting to a host? Would using an encrypted USB stick be an option?

          • transparency

            Would really like windows to have the option of being transparent, much like the ubuntu terminals, especially when they are detached.

              • Custom workspace layout

                I'd like to have the ability to open several connections at once in a consistent, recallable "workspace" layout.

                EG: Open load monitoring connections on all our servers (profiles are already configured to run "top") and tile them the same way every time.

                I should be able to:
                - open connections and arrange them the way I want them to be forevermore
                - hit "Save Workspace" and give the workspace a name
                - recall the workspace from the profiles window (could be a separate root tree below the profiles)

                • Windows DPI scaling

                  Penguinet does not look good in Windows DPI scaling. Everything looks blurry.

                  Microsoft's recommendation is to turn off the DPI scaling ( http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2900023 ) but in this case, the text is too tiny to be read because of the huge resolution (4k display).

                  4k displays becoming more and more common and ppls turn on DPI scaling, this is a must have feature.

                  • cisco nexus ssh doesn't work

                    Using penguinet to ssh to a nexus 3048 running version 6.0.2.

                    penguinet succesfully connects to the switch, up to the point of actually showing me the CLI, then reports "the host does not appear to be running an SSH service on the requested port" and force-closes the session again.
                    Changing the switch or its config is impossible (its in a corporate data centre)

                    ssh to the same switch works fine with Putty

                    seems like some bug in penguinet intereacting with the particular behaviour of ssh on this switch hardware/firmware ? using version 2.70 of penguinet.

                    • Change window height

                      I have a Telnet window open for an HP 2610-24-PwR switch and I can't change the windows height to be more than 24 lines. Any ideas where I should look in the config. options or what I should do differently?
                      Thanks for a great program.

                        Pleased try Profile, options, advanced, force size. Unfortunately hosts using Telnet may not negotiate window size. Let us know if this option works. If the host supports ssh then connect using ssh.

                      • Send command to multiple windows

                        One of the things we do right now is execute the same commands on many servers simultaneously. For instance to update all proprietary software or to verify configuration. It would be nice to be able to send any arbitrary command to all open windows ( anything from a simple ls, to the execution of a script file) so that I type 'ls -al' once, but see the output of that on all 16 open windows.

                        • Allow PuTTY Profiles to be Re-Imported

                          Asking if I want to import my profiles from PuTTY: Very cool! Giving me the option to re-import those profiles after I accidentally screw something up: even cooler.

                                  • Protect against unwanted disconnect

                                    Sometimes it happens that, by clicking with right mouse button on a terminal window, typically to do some copy&paste action, the Disconnect menu option is unadvertently clicked and the window flies away... with the whole session done til that moment. It would be nice to have a disconnect confirmation dialog, avoiding this annoyance (just try to happen during a vi session...). Or even a different right-click menu items positioning, setting the Disconnect at the top, thus making the issue very hard to happen.

                                    • Ditch the "Authentication agent not forwarded" warning

                                      I like to leave authentication agent forwarding switched on as most of my servers support it. However, some don't and the "authentication agent not supported" pop up box appears. I'm not sure this *modal* warning box is that helpful.

                                      • Better find in scroll buffer

                                        The find text function would be much more helpful if it highlighted all instances of the text found and centered the current location in the screen. Regular expressions would be of great help also.

                                        • Windows: on text Zoom, do not resize the session windows

                                          on Windows, the session window gets resized when I change the text zoom.
                                          This is not an expected behavior, It shouldn't be resized.
